A Few Things HE Reminds Me Of... (Day 556)


reaching across the dinner table.

never saying “May I...”, “Please” ,
or “Thank you”.

using your sleeve for a napkin.

chewing with your mouth open.

talking with your mouth full.

blowing your nose at the table.

always showing up late.

barging in without knocking.

judging and criticizing .

calling people names that are
   hurtful, childish, mean.

making a pregnant woman stand, 
   instead of offering your seat.

leaving your clothes in the laundry-room 
   washing machines for hours on end. 

changing lanes without signalling.

letting the door slam in the face of 
   the person behind you.

cutting ahead of others in line.

using language that is 
   abusive and foul.

not scooping your dog’s 
   poop.
